RODRIGUEZ, Josep A.. Re-defining the profession: Barcelona's physicians in the new millenium. Educ. méd. [online]. 2004, vol.7, n.1, pp.02-08. ISSN 1575-1813.
Using the recent survey "Barcelona's physicians in the new millennium", in this paper we study the processes of adaptation of the medical profession to the new social dynamics, as well as to the organization, state and market forces. As a part of this adjustment process, the medical profession redefines itself as a service profession, between the state and the market, with new organizational proposals and reaffirming its orientation to society.
